This is a print that I just finished this week, it features a very wide angle panoramic view off of Islamorada in the Florida Keys. This is oceanside about mile marker 88 behind one of my favorite restaurants The Lazy Days. The original had some boats in it, but I thought they were kind of distracting so I cloned them out. I also used some textures, overlays and brushes to make it a unique piece. Let me know what you think about it.
This is a new print that I have been working on. It features a vintage looking sailing vessel similar to a Cutty Sark under an ominous looking sky. The original shot was taken in San Francisco on the Bay.. Let me know what you think.

The Florida Keys are filled with beauty everywhere you look, Everything from the absolutely stunning sunsets to the wildlife to the ocean scenery. But some things are right out in plain sight and many just walk by them everyday and don’t take the time to notice the beauty. That is how I came across this old wooden dock in Islamorada, that I had walked by several times and not even taken a second look. Then one evening, as some ominous storm clouds rolled around in the background, the dock just seemed to pop out. As I looked at them on my laptop, they just didn’t hit me like they did while I was there. I played around with some HDR toning and this is what I came up with. HDR is something that can easily be overdone, but I wanted this shot to have that dramatic look.. I like it, I hope you like it too 🙂

A beautiful shot of the world famous Golden Gate Bridge spanning the San Francisco Bay. It is truly an amazing sight to see, well that is when you can see it. It is often shrouded in incredibly thick fog coming off of the bay. There were days when you could not see the bridge through the fog. If you have never been to San Francisco, you need to get there.

When visiting San Francisco, one of the “must see” places to visit is Pier 39. It is located towards the end of Fisherman’s Wharf, you will know you are there when you see the Aquarium of the Bay. After my first visit to Pier 39 I was conflicted. On one hand there are several great places to eat. On the other hand, there is about a million people trying to eat at those places the same time you are. It is actually not that bad, but can be crowded at times. Besides the restaurants, there are some neat shops with some nice jewelry, collectibles and more. The whole thing is actually built on a wooden pier that extends for a pretty good walk along the bay. Great views of the Golden Gate bridge, San Francisco bay and Alcatraz Island are plentiful. One thing that you will not be able to miss is the smell and sounds of the sea lions that have made the pier area their home. They attract a lot of fans from all over the world. On a good day there are over one hundred of them, lying on the man made platforms enjoying the sunshine. As you walk along the pier, you will smell the wonderful smells of the restaurants and vendors selling chocolates and ice cream. In the middle of it all is this gorgeous vintage circus carousel that has been restored to new condition. It is very vibrant with tons of very detailed artwork. It attracts as many adults as it does children. I love the blue skies behind this colorful “merry go round” All in all it is well worth the crowds, I highly recommend it to everybody.
